this one was SO HARD for me. I know there are some sloppy lines and what not going on here, but I was mainly concerned with just trying to get those weird curves and forshortening etc.

Yup that's a challenging pose! I feel like you got the lower half of the body down nicely and it prolly got harder as you moved up the body where the forshortening increased. Even if not all things are in exactly the right places, I like your style and linework! And the shadows/darks you put in seem like you really had a feel for it.

Thank you So much for the feedback! This one really stretched me, I almost gave up in frustration halfway through! This one really stretched me, I almost gave up in frustration halfway through. And yes you are right, as I worked my way up I started disconnecting all the pieces LOL!

Good, you are challenging yourself. By doing so you will learn a lot more (progress). Your shading line follows the body ( good). Lookup pen & ink drawings to see how they are shaded. Also, check out "On Air Video" which is a good source of figures to draw (free). In handling foreshortening, if it is very severe, draw the shape. Good job. Let's have some more (practice makes better). Things will get better with practice.

Excellent, thank you! I will check out on air video and pen shading techniques.
